Trish MacEnulty has written novels, short stories, journalism, children’s play, and memoirs. Like her great grandmother and her protagonist Louisa Delafield, she once even wrote a society column. A former professor of English at Johnson & Wales University in Charlotte, North Carolina, Trish now lives in Tallahassee with her husband, two dogs, and a cat and teaches for the School of Journalism at Florida A&M University. She currently writes book reviews and features for the Historical Novel Review.

When not writing or walking the dogs, she can be found gathering chanterelle mushrooms, cooking, or going out with her husband to hear her stepson’s jazz performances. Her daughter attends law school while managing policy for a criminal justice non-profit organization.
